Background

Background:

Launched at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1993, the DB7 was scheduled to follow the DB6 (now there’s a surprise), but because of marketing it was the DBS and we had to wait for 27 years for the DB7 to appear. Originally, it was the brainchild of Victor Gauntlet, who first suggested a new smaller Aston Martin in 1990. Production was to be sited at a new factory in Milton Keynes. However, the advent of the Ford Motor Company not only provided funding but also the dynamic Walter Hayes. Code-named DP1999, development of the new car was charged to Rod Mansfield, Engineering Director. In 1993, at the invitation of Walter Hayes, Sir David Brown became life president of Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd. This provided the perfect opportunity to revive the DB prefix. The new production was established at Bloxham, near Banbury and Aston Martin Oxford Ltd was born. Chassis number sequence begins at: 100,001.

Code named NPX, the new design was subjected to far more development testing that any previous Aston Martin. Approximately 30 prototypes were driven in some of the most diverse areas in the world. From the altitude and heat of Arizona to the intense cold of Scandinavia. Also full use was made of Ford’s own test facilities.

The body is a semi-monocoque shell with composite materials used for some of the outer panels. The designed by Ian Callum captures the very essence of ‘Aston Martin’. The elegant shaped radiator opening and the consequence compound curves of the front of the bonnet can be traced back to the DB3S. The sculpted interior with its predominate curved lines, is trimmed in Connolly leather and further complimented by burr walnut panels. The instrument panel has round, analogue gauges with the exception of the clock, which has digital display. Front seats are electrically operated and designed to hold the body in place while making the most of cornering capability. Air conditioning is fitted, as is cruise control.

The engine is a light alloy, twin camshaft, supercharged in-line 6-cylinder, with a displacement of 3228 cc. The cylinder head has 4 valves per cylinder with Zytec electronic multi-point fuel injection. The Eaton ‘roots’ type supercharger is driven by a toothed belt from the crankshaft. To meet exhaust emission requirements, fuel is unleaded and the latest engine management systems are employed, together with an exhaust three-way catalyst. The power developed is 335 b.h.p. at 5600 rpm with a peak torque figure of 368lb.ft. at 3000 rpm. Transmission is either a Getrag manual 5-speed gearbox or a 4-speed GM automatic. Telvis antilock disc brakes are all mounted outboard. Steering is power assisted with 2.54 turns lock to lock. The independent wishbone suspension has coil springs and monotube dampers all round and there is an anti-roll bar controlling both front and rear systems. The 18 x 8 inch light alloy wheels are of a special design and are shod with Bridgestone 245/40ZR18 tyres. Autocar magazine, October 19th 1993, achieved 5.8 secs 0-60 mph, 14.4 secs 0-100 mph and a maximum speed of 157 mph.

Summary:

Finished in the unobtrusive Mendip Blue that suits this model so well, we know that there are some who will look first at the odometer reading in their assessment.

But those who understand Aston Martin and performance motoring will look rather at that exemplary service record – a complete original service book, a supplementary service book and accompanying invoices.

This is a brilliant car, offered with a cracking history and the reassurance of a maintenance record that has not been stinted – if you’ve been waiting for a great i6 to buy, this is the one!

Vehicle History

This lovely car was sold by HWM of Walton on Thames to a Mr Engels of Winkfield in Berkshire in May 1998 and although the car covered few miles in the next 4 years, it was regularly serviced by the supplying dealer.

The first change of keeper came in October 2002 when it was acquired by a Chris Pyatt of Abingdon and it arrived at its next and current keeper in February of 2004. So, a total of just 3 keepers in nearly twenty years but, even more importantly the service record of this lovely car is absolutely unbroken – predominantly serviced by HWM with just one visit to Aston Martin Mayfair in 2003, she has most recently been under the care of Tim Butcher at Trinity Engineering.
